    Hello,
    Would it be correct to say: "If you want to tie a hook, you have to make a small loop, wrap the line around the hook and run the end of the line through the loop"? I think my description doesn't make any sense at all, but I want to know whether it is correct to say "Run the end of the line through the loop". Can we use run in this context?


    Thank you and please excuse me or the mistakes I made :(

    "Run the end of the line through the loop" :tick:

    "Thread the end of the line through the loop" :tick:

    "Pass the end of the line through the loop" :tick:

    I just did. I admit that my attempt to describe it was pathetic :(. I apologize for trying :(.

    No..... don't apologize. As one who has tied many hooks onto a fishing line, I can guarantee you that using words alone to describe he process is very, very difficult. :)

    I agree, sdgraham. I love fishing too :). If I had to explain that to somebody, even in my native language, I would fail. I'd rather show him/her :D.
